Kroc Center Open to Public

The Ashland Salvation Army Kroc Center is open to all. Memberships are not needed, but you must register at the Welcome Center to be a part of the Kroc Center. We do collect contact information on each guest for emergency reasons. Parental signatures are required for those younger than 18 years.

How to Register for Kroc Programs


Please register at the Welcome Center today or over the phone at 419.281.8001.

Payments, Refunds & Cancellations

  • Cancellations seven (7) or more days prior to the first class will receive a full refund of the class and material fees. Cancellations after that point will receive a prorated refund for the number of classes, which have occurred (regardless of whether you have attended or not), minus a $5 service charge. Material fees will not be refunded.
  • All rentals/parties have a 50% non-refundable deposit due at time of booking. All room rentals/parties must be paid in full one (1) week before the rental occurs. Any cancellations must be made at least two (2) weeks prior to a rental/party, or a refund will not be given. Refunds are subject to prior agreement. Please see our rentals section of our website for more rental information.
  • Refunds will be given when programs are canceled due to low enrollment.
  • There will be a $20 charge for each returned check. Use of the Kroc Center is not permitted until payments are made current. Checks will not be resubmitted and all future payments must be made in cash, credit or debit.

Snow Day Policy

  • If Ashland Public Schools are closed or dismissed early because of weather after-school programs at the Kroc Center will be canceled.
  • All cancellations and closures will be posted on our website and Facebook page, and broadcast on channels WVMC and WNCO as soon as possible.
